...and in the house, Betty asks him to tell her what happened. He says that his dad wants him and his sister Charlotte to live with him, and his mom doesn't care. "She just wants to be with her boyfriends." Betty asks if she has a lot of boyfriends, but I'm not sure if she's actually surprised that someone would date multiple people at the same time or if she's just gauging the market for when she's out there again. Glen reiterates how he hasn't seen her in so long before asking if he can use the bathroom. Betty offers to wash his clothes, and he hands her his bag before leaving the room.
Later, Betty's flipping through some of Glen's comics when the boy reappears, freshly scrubbed, and starts eating the lunch she's made for him. After a few bites, he asks why she's alone there, and she covers by brightly offering that it's the middle of the day. Glen: "It's lousy." Betty tries to convey that the hair thing was all kinds of wrong by expressing her hope that Glen understands why Helen was mad at her, but Glen's answer is "Yeah. Because she doesn't understand." Betty smiles and agrees. Betty? The kid has problems. Try harder here. He tells her he's not going home, because he's having problems with his parents. "I know I am because they keep saying I'm not." Heh. He says his mom is never home these days, and his dad has another baby. "His wife is pretty mean." He adds, though, that he's responsible -- he brushes his sister's teeth and puts them both to bed. Well, Glen, maybe you should go home. You don't want to be responsible for Charlotte developing gingivitis at such a young age, do you? He asks if she's going to eat, and since he is not her cheating husband, she picks up a sandwich and takes a big bite.
